A MedTech West seminar: Functional basis for brain plasticity in reconstructive upper-limb surgery in tetraplegia

Although spinal cord injury (SCI) remains incurable, surgical recon-struction of the arm and hand in tetraplegia is a powerful tool to restore upper extremity functions and personal freedom, e.g. the ability to groom, self-feed, self-catheterize, lift objects, write, swim, maneuver wheel-chair and drive a car. Tendon transfers are the most common procedure in which the distal end of a functionally intact muscle is detached, rerouted and reattached to a nonworking muscle to... Read More
